COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, decadent and full-bodied. The intense, roasted malt flavor is derived from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. Whole vanilla beans introduced post-fermentation adds complexity and enhance the dessert-like qualities.
As depicted on the label, this full-bodied beer salutes American pilots who airdropped packages of chocolate into post-WWII Berlin, bringing joy and community together in the face of adversity. Weve partnered with Food For The Hungry who we consider to be the chocolate bombers of today, delivering regular food rations and non-food items to the struggling people of South Sudan who are in desperate need.

March 1st, 2013 - Small propeller planes, tropical leaves and cocoa bean exports set the story for Hangar 24s Chocolate Porter, another brew with awesome label art. Inside the packaging is a slightly more uniform brew, dark with heavy contrast, dark and brooding most porters tend to be, with a heavy head that looks like the foam on a shaken bottle of soy sauce. Dry and dusty, the aroma reminds me of a dark, bitter and slightly oxidized chocolate bar laced with nibs. THeres an element of chocolate syrup too, more direct and sweet, but also rich and luxuriant. And finally, there is a drop or two of coffee, but it is strictly dominated by the rich and silky chocolate perfume. The palate is rich, unctuous and just a little too heavy, until the mid-taste when the carbonation spikes and grants some much needed levity and airiness. The chocolate notes are darker and bitter, up there with 72% cocoa solid bars, with a slight hops bitterness and a light edge of alcohol. The flavors present are bold, but not especially deep, which is a shame. These are dark, deep bass notes of chocolate that deserve to be rooted into the tongue, but even with that, its a solid beer.

Thanks Heidi for the bottle. Being an imperial porter, I poured this into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with a fingers worth of a slim white to off white slightly foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light speckled lacing roamed around the glass. The smell had some sweet to roasty cocoa to allow a nice rich yet bitter roasted coffee to try to make a stance but ends up fading just a bit. The taste was mainly a good balance of sweet to roasty with the cocoa and coffee combining nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a sessionability rearing its head slightly but Im finding more of a sipping aspect from it at times. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Overall, nice imperial porter I could down again.

"Had much bigger hopes for this, especially as a near imperial strength brew, as H24 has been spot on so far. Easily the least favorite beer Ive had from them so far. Thin for 8% and overly sweet, smells and tastes like a tootsie roll. Not entirely a bad thing, just a bit too artificial and sweet.

DYCSoccer17 (3649) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2014
22 ounce bottle purchased at Bel Air in Woodland. The aroma is more faint than I would expect. A little tinny and metallic with faint sweetness. Light roast. Transparent dark cola/mahogany color with a medium, fizzy light tan head present. Starts with a bit of a chewy, semi-sweet maltiness. Pretty full-bodied. Becomes a little toasted with slight astringency in the middle. Dark bitter chocolate flavors late. Pretty one-dimensional, and somewhat pedestrian.

Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 22 oz bomber. Dark brown pour, off-white medium thick head, light lacing. Chocolate and brown sugar in the aroma. Flavor has some chocolate notes, a touch of licorice, a wee bit of creosote. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not really feeling it on this one.
